A departure from the norm

Departing from the norm here. Can’t answer why this hit me the way it did today.

“When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high.
And don’t be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.

Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho’ your  dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on,
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone.
You’ll never walk alone.”

Although I was not part of the brotherhood that is the Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps, I am still moved anytime I hear this song.

May you never walk alone.

    Thank you.

    The pure emotion you can hear in Madison’s performance is further accentuated by knowing the words of the song.

    I’m glad to help. I hope you know that.

    Before even playing the video, I got chills.
    As you know, I was also a DCI guy (for 1/2 a summer)
    I marched with Pioneer, which is based very near to the Scouts, in Wisconsin. In those few months, we marched many shows with the Scouts. So, I was blessed to experience this live many times.

    I wonder how bad it is that I hardly listen to DCI, because I love it so much! I get fired up and depressed (however that’s possible) whenever I listen, because I would still love to be playing.
    (Oh, the Scouts’ 95 & 96 shows are two of my favorites!)

    I have had plenty of dreams where I was marching again and thinking they know I’m too old to march. Love it and miss it a bunch too!

    My favorite Scouts show is 1988 when they won. Malaguena is superb!

    Hold your head up high. MYNWA!

    Nobody does Malaguena better! 🙂
